's ruckelhaus who made this clear to me and a few others. i interviewed jonathan moore who was elliot richardson's chief aide. richardson and ruckelshaus implored bork to stay. now, bork had a different legal theory what the president could or could not do. but he wanted to resign. bork actually wanted to resign and go back to yale and he just was convinced his yale friend, his colleagues would never forgive him. ruckelhaus and richardson said no, if you resign nobody is running this place and they were afraid alexander haig, someone they mistrusted, would choose a new attorney general who would be a disaster for the country and they said -- they put pressure on bork to stay. bork describes it but the beauty of these oral histories, you'll see croob rating evidence from other people who don't have the same stake bork does in his own reputation. >> what are you doing now? >> i'm an independent historian. i left and i had a book about kennedy i had been meaning to write, i had a contract for it, and i needed time to write it. i went back to writing and i have a couple books i'm working on right no
